    I wear the UA heat compression right now. During the cold weather I have some UA cold gear that works really good.

    That's what I used to do, but found that the UA material is less abrasive and softer. I will probably try the 511 offering this summer just to do it. UA and 511 are expensive, but there is definitely a difference. At least to me.

    I just switched from the sleeveless version of this type to the ones with sleeves and noticed the pit stains and BO subsided.

    Edit: Purchase a size larger than usual. I'm skinny and these are tight on me.

    5.11 makes a t-shirt that is designed to be longer than the standard shirt so it stays tucked in better. I have not tried it but everything else I have tried from 5.11 has been A+

    Hanes black cotton premium t shirts for me. But then again I am cheap.

    I'm fully with ateamer on this one. I had heard from a coworker that the target UA knockoffs were just as good. I think "Champion" is the brand. I bought a few and I've been really pleased with them. They're just like the UA shirts and do a good job of keeping you cool and wicking out moisture.

    These are the ones I bought:

    I haven't tried any of the long sleevers or turtlenecks so can't comment on those yet.

    Rider,
    as far as your vest riding up... was it fit to for you? and does it fit properly? also take a look at your shoulder straps my thought is they may be a little too tight, try letting them out a little. Also in my experiance unless your wearing either a Hidden Tailor or Shirt stays on the vest your going to get some ride up no matter what. I personally wear a hidden tailor and it keeps my vest down and my shirt tucked in all shift.
    No I didnt have it measured,it was issued. It seems to fit fine and is comfortable till the tshirt is soaked w/sweat about 2 hrs in. Then its a constant thing to have to pull it down from underneath my arms. I may try and get an underarmor shirt,then get the belt shirt stay and see if that works. They just gave me the thing and said "here ya go". Ha

    Does Under Armor help stop it from riding up?

    I have worn the UA tactical or even regular compression fit shirt. They are great and keep you dry, however I have switched to 5.11 tight crew s/s shirt. I have found they have a better collar, and are a few inches longer so they stay tucked in all day long. Just my own opinion....They also have mesh vents for the armpit area which is nice..

    Any suggestions on how to stop the vest from riding up a few hours into the shift? It fits nice and snug for first few hours,then starts sliding up under the arms. I dont know if this is an issue with the t-shirt as its soaked at this point or is it an issue with the vest.

    Check out the Blauer 3XDry shirts. Feels like a regular cotton t-shirt, fits snug so there is no wrinkling under the vest but not "compression" tight like the UA shirts and don't smell like a dirty jock after you break your first sweat of a shift. I have been wearing the same shirts for almost 3 years now, so durability is not an issue.
